Waterville is situated on a narrow strip of land in County Kerry, Ireland, with Lough Currane on the east side and Ballinskelligs Bay on the west. The Currane River links the two. The beautiful Lake Currane is reputed to have some of the best salmon and sea trout angling in Europe, while Ballinskelligs Bay presents spectacular views to those staying in Waterville. This picturesque village is renowned as a golfing destination - Waterville Golf links has been voted the 5th best golf course in UK and Ireland. It was also the favourite holiday destination of Charlie Chaplin and his family, who first visited in 1959 and came back every year for over ten years. There is a statue of him in the centre of the village, and an Annual Comedy Film Festival is held in his memory.

The most westery point in the whole of Ireland, in the Dingle Peninsula, is part of the county, as is the Killarney National Park, an area of outstanding natural beauty, which has made Killarney one of the most popular tourist destinations in Ireland.

Kerry is a very scenic county, with lakes, mountains, and the Atlantic coast, with much to interest the visitor. Walking routes in the county include the Dingle Way, the Beara Way and the Kerry Way, and the area is popular with cyclists too, especially the Ring of Kerry.
